Gallery's Good 4 Pride N Print
Gallery's Good 4 Pride N Print
Been a Good few months for seeing the many ways in which winners in the IAPHC's International Gallery take pride in their achievements won on behalf of their clients.
725 Hampstead Close,
Joanne Pettigrew is the wonderfully talented lady who looks after the submission of Transcontinental Vancouver's entries to each successive International Gallery. Last week, she placed an order for 15 duplicate awards which the Transcon sales team will be presenting to clients. Here is a picture of the display Dean mentions:
Meanwhile, Tom Newland, who owns the Allegra Print & Imaging centre that graciously assented to be our depot for delivery of International Gallery entry submissions generated some positive energy for his own GOLD award winning submission to the 36th International Gallery. Tom's project was recognized for its innovative use of introducing a new wide format printer by means of piggybacking on the excitement of a new baseball stadium (Target Field) opening in Minneapolis.
In this page capture from Allegra magazine, we see that the IAPHC was recognized as the 'client' for purposes of Tom's entry into the International Gallery.
The Allegra owners magazine also included this additional info about Tom and the project:
We loved the poster, because we are rabid baseball fans and because we were thrilled to see the IAPHC logo in lights.
Later this week, we stopped by the Vintage 99 company Facebook page and were just as thrilled to see that the fine folks at Vintage 99 in Livermore California are saluting their award wins for their excellent labels by including pictures of the awards on their company Facebook page:
We have a robust, diverse and growing group of firms who have contacted us to say they will be entering the International Gallery in 2011 -- they include, The Flesh Company, A&M Label, 3i Graphics, Specialty Print Communications, Graphics West, McCormick & Armstrong, AJ Images, and The RB Dwyer Group. Only Graphics West and AJ Images have ever entered previously, so that certainly bodes well for the competition.
On March 31, 2011, the Central Minnesota Printing Professionals, a chapter of the IAPHC, held their annual awards banquet. Winners included Nahan Printing, Quad/Graphics St. Cloud, Sentinel Printing, Wolters Kluwer, Sunray Printing, Kenning Outsource Group, Lakeside Press, Corporate Graphics International (a unit of Taylor Corporation) and Merrill Communications LLC - part of Merrill Corporation.
Natalie Rein of Merrill Communications sent along this comment and the picture that accompanies her e-mail:
"It is always exciting to bring the results of the show back to the production floor and see the pride in every one's face. They work very hard all year and this is probably one of the biggest ways to give positive feedback to a well deserved team.
On April 20, 2011 the IAPHC-Detroit chapter held its annual Gallery awards banquet, and one of the winning firms -- A&M Label of Wixom Michigan has done a fine job of celebrating their success on the company Blog administered by IAPHC member, and technology savant for A&M - David Platz.:
On May 10, 2011, IAPHC member, and frequent Gold award winner in the International Gallery, Charlie Clark, proprietor of Charlie Clark Books llc sent us a PDF file announcing that he will again serve as a judge of the Sinar Mas Printing Awards in China. We salute our good friend Charlie (few know more about the book printing process than Charlie!!) and especially commend him for the excellent and attractive use of logo art in his news release:
